[quote]User "Igetp2s": I just wanted to give thanks to DimeLine. They bailed me out last year from part of the balance I lost that was stolen by Parlaymakers. I reached the rollover requirement a long time ago, but kept playing there beyond that and finally requested my first withdrawal last week (for more than the amount they initially placed in my account).
The withdrawal went extremely smoothly and I got my money very quickly without having any problems whatsoever, and didn't need to contact them at all for anything. I just wanted to thank Dimeline for their generosity which has helped reduce my Parlaymaker losses. I have kept some money in my account to continue playing there. Also thanks to SBR for arranging the bailout.[/quote]Dimeline tells SBR that they have hired a well-known industry linesman, and have entirely revamped their bonus model. Dimeline has been cooperative with SBR in cases of player feedback or claims. The sportsbook is powered by the BTG Global N.V. group which is licensed in Curacao.

Parlaymakers - SBR initiates rating coverage at C
On November 18th, SBR reported that Parlaymakers (SBR rating C) canceled $4,000 worth of a player's teasers. The player had originally bet $1,000 on five teasers, all including the Baltimore Ravens leg of -1.5. Parlaymakers cited a rule disallowing more than $1,000 on any teaser team. Parlaymakers claimed that the player was aware of the restriction, but could not prove this. Since the wagers were canceled prior to any of the games beginning, the player rebet the teasers elsewhere. Parlaymakers has agreed to credit the player a $1,600 freeplay, which is equivalent to the amount of equity the teasers held.
A Parlaymakers (unrated) dispute has been reported. On November 11th, a player
made five bets of $1000 on a 2-team 6-point teaser, taking Baltimore +7.5 and
Indianapolis -1. Approximately ten minutes before the Baltimore game began on Thursday,
Parlaymakers voided 4 of the wagers stating that its limits were $1000 per identical teaser. Parlaymakers has been unable to show a printed rule with this limit, the player has also denied seeing any warning of this kind. Parlaymakers stated that the
teaser wagering page had the following warning when the player placed duplicate
wagers: "Multiple Teaser wagers on the same teams with
the same lines that exceed the wager limit for Teasers will not be
allowed." SBR is discussing this dispute with Parlaymakers.
Parlaymakers (unrated) is under review by SBR. The newly launched sportsbook agreed to binding arbitration in the event of any sportsbook complaints submitted to SBR.
